Tasting Notes :


Semillon and Viognier were the starring whites,

with delicate flavors and aromas.

While the yields have been small,

the overall quality has created deeply colored and

textured wines that resonate their place of origin.

 Strong winds at flowering at the beginning

of the growing season reduced berry and

bunch count in many vineyards.

 The difficult seasonal conditions continued up to harvest- a dry winter

and spring were followed by very hot and dry December and January.

 2020 was a difficult season to manage for both grower and winemaker with

yields much lower than anticipated.

 Older vineyards with deeper roots remained steadfast under these conditions and

produced small volumes of deeply concentrated wines from the lower yields.

 Grilled or roast beef, ribs, spicy sausage, big beefy stews, strong or hard cheese.
